Chris Jericho reacts to this week’s WWE roster cuts

Last updated

AEW’s ‘Le Champion’ Chris Jericho recently took to social media to react to the current crop of WWE releases that have just taken place.

WWE released a number of talents at the end of this week. Notably, all of the Superstars released as part of this latest round in budget cuts were all from the NXT brand.

“I think now more than ever it’s obvious” Chris Jericho began on Twitter. “AEW is the best pro wrestling company in the world today! Both for fans ’¦and especially for performers. Nothing can stop us now!”

All of the Superstars released this week are subject to 30-day non-compete clauses, meaning that they would be able to join All Elite, or another major company, at the beginning of September.
